Two new foreign shows I just watched are:

Gunslinger Girl

Gunslinger Girl; Il Teatrino

From Wikipedia:
Quote
Set in modern-day Italy, Gunslinger Girl follows the exploits of the Social Welfare Agency (often referred to as simply "the Agency"), ostensibly a charitable institution sponsored by the Italian government. While the Agency professes to aid the rehabilitation of the physically injured, it is actually a military organization specializing in counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism. It is composed of two independent branches: Public Safety, its surveillance and intelligence-gathering division, and Special Ops, the anti-terrorist division. Special Ops is itself divided into Sections 1 and 2, the latter of which employs young girls fitted with cybernetic implants as agents. The implants, which consist of synthesized muscles and carbon fiber frames, result in heightened strength and reflexes as well as high resilience to damage and pain. Each girl is paired with a male trainer, or "handler", and together they are referred to as a fratello ‚ÄĒ the Italian term for "siblings". The handler is responsible for the training, welfare and field performance of his charge, and is free to use whatever methods he considers suitable. While these methods vary according to the handler, a common part of each girl's regimen is brainwashing called "conditioning", which produces a deadly assassin with unquestioning loyalty to her handler but also limits her life span.

Each fratello exhibits a unique dynamic. Most of the handlers have police or military backgrounds and were recruited directly into Section 2. Most also chose their own cyborgs from a list of candidates, though some appear to have been assigned a cyborg. The Social Welfare Agency primarily concerns itself with dealing with the Padania Republic Faction, an organization seeking an independent northern Italy through acts of terrorism and bribery.

Most animated TV shows show guns from a generic never-touched-one-themselves
point of view. This one is different. I have been able to identify most of the firearms
make & model. Two of the cyborgs were issued SIG-Sauer P239 two tone pistols. The
Iraqi version of the SVD appears in an episode in the first series. A cyborg named
Henrietta carries a FN P90. The list of excelent-ness goes on forever... The cyborgs
are all assassins, so if it is a gunfight you are looking for, they will deliver.

Open Range.

I love the way the fight starts out, as the supposedly best shooter in the bad guys' bunch brags about killing the dog, Kevin Costner just walks right up to him and puts a slug into his head, taking off his stove-pipe hat in the process!

From the moment Kevin Costner's character starts walking toward the gun slinger,
it's clear that the gun slinger has misread the situation and is a dead man who
just doesn't know it yet.

Open Range is a favorite of mine for several reasons. Most of the characters are believable,
the dispute is easy to understand, and in the end, the towns people find their back bone
and stand up. In most westerns, the towns people are 'rescued' by the hero, in this case
he just showed them how, and leveled the playing field a bit.

Open Range is probably the most libertarian film I've ever seen, which is quite stunning since its producer/director/star and most of his collaborators are dyed-in-the-wool liberal statists. Some research has revealed that the libertarian-verging-on-anarchist philosophy comes whole from Lauran Paine's  novel The Open Range Men, from which the movie was very closely adapted. Most of the dialogue is lifted verbatim, including Duvall's wonderful speech quoted in my sig. Paine (who, from the 50's until the present day,  wrote hundreds of pulp westerns under 14 pseudonyms!) has become a writer I'm studying and researching: the libertarian/anti-government/anarchist themes play an important role in every book I've located and read by him so far. And it's presented so matter-of-factly and as such an obvious truth that it blindsides the reader (including, apparently, Costner and his pals when they adapted the novel!). In seeking novels to base spec scripts on, it seems Mr. Paine is a treasure trove. :D And, beyond that, his books are beautifully written: tough, taut, sleek and realistic, with fantastic dialogue, plenty of humor and characters who manage to be both believable and heroic. I highly recommend his work to all, and consider it on the level of L'Amour and Leonard.

lets see...
Black Hawk Down? The whole movie is pretty much a gunfight. It's a very "Hollywood" but still a good flick
Smokin Aces? Just good gruesome fun.
and the last gunfight in The Town, that whole movie was pretty great.

In Samurai Champloo, there's an episode where some guy with a colt revolver tries to kill Jin... The guy is acting all cocky but can't hit a damn thing and the last round is deflected by Jin's Wakizashi which he then kills the guy with...

I just do not get any of the anime stuff, or a lot of the more recent "action" movie stuf either.  They tend to pay no attention whatsoever to the staged reality.   They just cut back and forth- bubba shoots, bobo shots and specole speckles...........    I much prefer to see stuf like in Blackhawk Down where you can often see shooter and sootee in the same frame and the angles and shadows, etc. makes sense.........  Heck True Lies for all its special effect hokieness at least did a decent job of that.

Most of the time news is about the same old violations of the first principles of consent and golden rule with a dash of force thrown in........ with just enough duct tape to be believable.

Others come to mind but Open Range takes the cake for me due to its realism, despite the slightly unrealistic shotgun blasts. Kevin Costner's character can be seen constantly reloading during the big gun battle.

So, you want realistic gore?

Try Ichi the Killer. I quit watching less than 5 minutes into the first ep when some poor fool got his ballz cut off with tin snips.

The movie, "The Losers" had some interesting scenes. So did the "A-Team," which was funny, too :)

Is it just me, or does the bow remind anyone else of the weapon of Hank, the Ranger, from the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon?
